Evergreen Park World Cultures Community School seeks to uphold five core components:
High Quality Instruction
Mutual respect and effective collaboration amongst families, community and school staff
Student motivation and engagement
"A community school is both a place and a set of partnerships between the school and other community resources. Its integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth and community development and community engagement leads to improved student learning, stronger families and healthier communities. Community schools offer a curriculum that emphasizes real-world learning and community problem-solving. Schools become centers of the community and are open to everyone." -Coalition for Community Schools (communityschools.org)

Anoka-Hennepin's First Priority is Student Safety
We want to reassure you that student safety remains Anoka-Hennepin School District's first priority. School administrators have put a lot of work into safety planning and have provided staff with crisis training. Anoka-Hennepin has a district crisis team based on a federal model and each school building has a crisis team with specific roles for key staff.
Each school crisis team meets regularly to evaluate their crisis plan and each school conducts several lockdown drills throughout the year to ensure all school staff know what to do. After each drill, they meet to discuss how the drill went and to make improvements if needed.
We work closely with local law enforcement on a regular basis so they are prepared if called to respond to a crisis.
After each tragedy such as this, federal law enforcement makes recommendations for improving safety practices. Our lockdown drills and much of our crisis planning is the result of those recommendations. Any new recommendations that may come from this recent tragedy will also be added to our plans if necessary.
We want to reassure you that our schools remain safe and we will do our utmost to protect the children entrusted to us.
